Researching the family of Thomas Cox from Pendleton County, WV. He migrated to Greenbrier County in early 1800's or before. My ancestors were through William Cox, Thomas's son and Frances Pinnell. They were married in Greenbrier County in 1811 and migrated to Nicholas County in 1833. They both died after 1860. They had 13 children, namely, Joel, James, Matilda, John, Maria, Elizabeth, Margaret, Frances, Jesse P., Thomas M., William Henry, and George Andrew.

Also researching the family of James E. Sparks, born in Pendleton County and moved to what is now Nicholas County in the late 1700's or early 1800's. He married Mary "Polly" Boggs in 1804 and they had six children, namely, Isabella (Patilla), John, Charles C., James E. Sparks,JR., Elizabeth, and Uriah. My ancestors came through Charles C.

I have abundant information on descendants of both families and willing to share. Hope to find the parents of Thomas Cox and James E. Sparks. It has been widely circulated that George and Sarah were the parents of James E., but I have proof showing that to be wrong.

I will be happy to accept further information on any of these families.

There is a Cox Reunion held each year at the Nicholas County Veterans Memorial Park in Summersville, WV. It is held on the second Saturday of August beginning about 9:30 and lasting until all questions have been discussed. Bring a covered dish and enjoy the fellowship and food with your cousins. Be sure to bring pictures, reports, etc. about the Cox Family to share with others.
